    Help

    We are looking for (2 / couple, one male as some strength is needed) to help with the estate management and working on the vines and our veg and fruit garden. Some help in the house with cleaning and housekeeping duties. You will normally eat with us and our guests in the evenings.

    The work is ongoing throughout the year.
    Help with improving our internet marketing via are own website and social network sites. Good project to work on when it is raining or a bit on the warm side in the afternoons

    We are a small traditional working vineyard .In the vineyards you will learn how we tend the vines and also be involved in Wine tasting, blending and then bottling.
    Diverse things like Tractor driving (cutting the grass in the fields) to learning how we smoke foods in our traditional whole oak smoke house.
    Chain saw /strimmer/ weedwacking knowledge would be useful, plenty of tree /logging work to do

    You will have opportunities to cook (this is optional but in the past we have had Workawayer’s enjoying the fun making new menus from ideas brought with them) and learn the making of many local dishes as well as jams and chutneys.

    You will often go off with one of us when we go to shop for provisions.
